Overview

This edition features the exact same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole- punched, loose-leaf version. Books à la Carte also offer a great value–this format costs 35% less than a new textbook.

The Bittinger Worktext Series changed the face of developmental education with the introduction of objective-based worktexts that presented math one concept at a time. This approach allowed readers to understand the rationale behind each concept before practicing the associated skills and then moving on to the next topic. With this revision, Marv Bittinger continues to focus on building success through conceptual understanding, while also supporting readers with quality applications, exercises, and new review and study materials to help them apply and retain their knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bittinger (mathematics, Indiana U. and Purdue U.) uses a five step problem solving approach with real data applications to make algebra both straightforward and connected to everyday life. Detailed graphs and color drawings and photographs also help students to visualize mathematical concepts. The book is designed to assist in every step of curriculum, from review exercises with answers, to pre and post-tests. There are also a number of supplemental materials available for the instructor to use in conjunction with this text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
